If you own rental property, ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you forced to keep up with the ever-changing fair housing laws and other legislation regarding tenancy, including lead-based paint and toxic mold policies?
  • Are you concerned about the possibility of a tenant suing you...and winning?
  • Do you have to deal with the collection of rents, late payments, and bounced checks?
  • Do you dread confrontation with tenants, trying to convince them to take care of the property better or start paying their rent on time?
  • Do you cross your fingers, hoping that you won't have to deal with the move-out / advertising / move-in process that occurs between tenants?
  • Do you struggle with the process of advertising and showing your vacant home, interviewing tenants, taking applications, and running credit and background checks?
  • Do you sometimes feel that you spend all of your time collecting checks, paying vendors, and performing all of the accounting necessary on your rental?
